IDS presents IDS NXT, novel vision app-based sensors and cameras
Customized, smart vision sensors: IDS NXT is a new generation of vision app-based industrial cameras from IDS. Individual tasks can be realized with the app development kit, new functions can be installed as easily as apps on a smartphone.
The freely programmable platform is not restricted to specific tasks. Instead, users can change and set up their preferred vision tasks in a very short time. The image processing engine then delivers either pre-processed data to a PC or final results for independently made process decisions. This offers universal possibilities in numerous application fields, e. g. in optical quality assurance, as an analytical instrument in medical technology, for monitoring tasks by facial recognition or vehicle and person counting.
IDS NXT vegas is the first device of the new product family and extremely versatile due to its integrated 1.3 MP CMOS sensor, a liquid lens, LED illumination and Time-of-Flight (ToF) sensor for distance measurement. Device status and network settings can be called up on the high-contrast, highly legible OLED display by just clicking a button. The vision app-based sensor weighs only 185 grams and simplifies design-ins into individual hardware and software. The board level option is also very interesting for OEM equipment manufacturers.
Other features include SOC (system on a chip) with low power consumption and an integrated flash memory (1 GB) for storing error images, system logs, user settings and vision apps. Dust-tight and splash-proof according to IP65, the sensor also comes with vibration-proof, industry-standard M12 circular connectors that provide Gigabit Ethernet, 12-24 V DC power supply, trigger, flash, two digital inputs/outputs and a RS-232 interface. The latter one allows direct communication with a PLC or other machine controls. IDS NXT vegas comes with a full HALCON embedded runtime license and the IDS NXT Software Development Kits
